Estimate the manufacturing cost for a bearing housing following the Formula Student Costing Scheme.
Dimensions and materials of the bearing housing will depend on your student number. Drawings and Solid works part files are provided online, adjust the designs to your specific dimensions.
The Bearing housing assembly is composed by 4 components, plus fasteners:
1. Base of the pedestal
2. Top of the pedestal
3. Bearing (plain bearing for rapidly rotating shafts)
4. Locking Pin (interference fitting with bearing, loose fitting with pedestal)
a. Two threaded studs (fasteners)
b. Two nuts (fasteners)
If your Student number is ABCDEF:
Use Solidworks databases for the definition of material properties (such as material densities) and for the selection of suitable fasteners (Design library\ Solidworks toolbox).
